Humpday hottie

Hello dearest friends!

Today we will introduce you to...


Jude Law

Yeah, OK. We know, you don't really need to be introduced to that pretty boy but we are sure you don't know all the facts stated below. Read on dears.

David Jude Law was born December 29, 1972 (oh well... he's a Sagittarius... that's his excuse for cheating then. Hmm...) in South East London.

Jude started acting with the National Youth Music Theatre at the age of 12 and at 17 he dropped out of school completely to star in a Grenada daytime TV soap called "Families".

In 1992, Jude started his stage career. He starred in many plays throughout London and was nominated for the "Laurence Olivier Award" of "Outstanding Newcomer".

After doing the play "Indiscretions" in London, he moved and did it again in Broadway alongside Kathleen Turner. This role earned him a Tony Award nomination[11] and the Theatre World Award.

Jude Law had his breakthrough with the British crime drama Shopping, which also featured his future wife Sadie Frost.

He became one of the Top Ten 2006 A-list of the most bankable movie stars in Hollywood.

On 1 March 2007, he was honoured with the "Ordre des Arts et des Lettres" conferred by the French government, in recognition of his contribution to World Cinema Arts. He was named a Chevalier des Arts et des Lettres.

He met Sadie Frost while working on the film Shopping. They married on 2 September 1997 and divorced on 29 October 2003. He is the father of a stepson, Finlay Munro, and three biological children with Frost: son Rafferty, daughter Iris and son Rudy.

He and his ex-wife Sadie Frost fought a custody battle for over 2 years.

Originally was godfather of Kate Moss' daughter Lila, but when he got divorced from Sadie Frost, with whom Moss was close friends with, she relieved him of all duties.

While making the film Alfie, he and his co-star Sienna Miller began a relationship, became engaged on Christmas Day 2004.In July 2005, she ended the engagement and he publicly apologized for cheating on her with nanny Daisy Wright. They reconciled briefly and broke up again in 2006.

In September 2009, Jude Law became a father for the fourth time following a brief relationship with US model Samantha Burke in 2008. He has a young daughter named Sophia.

In December 2009, it was reported that Law and Miller had rekindled their relationship after starring in separate shows on Broadway in New York City in the Fall of 2009. They spent Christmas 2009 in Barbados, along with three of Law's children.

Has a tattoo on his left forearm of words from a Beatles song, "Sexy Sadie", which states "You came along to turn on everyone Sexy Sadie", representing his ex-wife Sadie Frost.

During a guest appearance on "The Tonight Show with Jay Leno" (1992), Jay Leno asked him where his name came from, and he replied that he was named after the Beatles song "Hey Jude."

Broke a rib after falling backwards while filming the murder scene on the boat in the movie The Talented Mr. Ripley (1999).

He kept the shirts his characters in The Talented Mr. Ripley (1999), Midnight in the Garden of Good and Evil (1997) and Gattaca (1997) worn in the scenes when they were killed.

When joining the N.Y.M.T., he was placed in the wrong dormitory because they thought he was a girl because of his name. He never told anyone but was soon caught and moved.

Jude Law

Personal quotes:

I've always thought Prince Charming in Cinderella was the most boring role; I'd rather be the Wicked Witch.

(About his injury during Dickie's death scene in The Talented Mr. Ripley (1999)) "Matt [Damon] broke my rib! But I think I strained his neck, we got a little bit carried away".

(about how he got the role of Gigolo Joe) "Through one of those fantastical phone calls when your agent calls you and says 'Stephen Spielberg is on the phone, he wants to speak to you about his next film.' And once you've peeled yourself of the ceiling you go, *clears throat* Yeah, great."

(about the paparazzi) "I throw root vegetables at them."

It was cold, very, very cold. I don't remember a lot of daylight, just endless hours of being buried in rubble, interrupted by lots of raising collective spirits by singing Russian folk songs. Can our genuine physical suffering be seen on film? I bloody hope so. (On filming Enemy at the Gate)

Attack of the nosy neighbors

Good morning dear friends!

Since Scuttlebutt was a little out of it yesterday, we're gonna post our "Monday's attack of the nosy neighbors" today!

Today we give to you... Khrissa aka kdb.


1. We know what we call you... What would you like us to call you?

You can call me whatever you like as long as it's Khrissa. But what do you call me?

Scuttle: Name twin!! :)
Prattle: Bwhahahaha! No, I call you Khrissa too..

2. How old are you or how old do you want us to think you are?

I'm 26 going on 14 and a half :P

Prattle: *cough and whispers* pterodactyl
Scuttle: *kicks Prattle on the shin*

3. When is your Birthday & what is your star sign?

November 19, 1983 and I'm a Scorpio. I'm very passionate and can be rather secretive but I am very trustworthy. Pretty sure that's what a Scorpio is described as. Unless I'm reading someone else's star signs.

4. Do you like cats or dogs? And why?

Dogs, I have a baby named Jasper (haw haw) and he's the most hyperactive dog I have ever met.

Scuttle: Maybe cause of the vampire bloodline your dog has cause of the name you've given him!
Prattle: Dogs can't be vampires Dear Scuttle... *shakes head* Maybe a werewolf, but not a vampire..
Scuttle: Why can't dogs be vampires?? Huh? What if a vampire bites his dog and turns him into a vampire? I know I would if I became a vampire! I'd bite Dahlia so she could stay with me forever and ever!

5. What is your favorite movie and/or book?

My fav book is "Swan" by Naomi Campbell. It's one of the f*cked up books I have ever read. But pretty awesome.
My fav movie of all time... ooh that's a hard one. My fav movie for the moment is "Remember Me" - not for any particular actor... I mean reason. XD

Scuttle: Swan? By Naomi Campbell? Is she writing books too? I thought she was a black belt beating people up for a living *grins* As for "Remember me"... I see. *grins*
Prattle: Interesting... I too thought she was a boxer or somesuch... *grins* don't let her on an airplane!! Ahhhhh... *sighs* Robbie....

The Philippines, Singapore and Sri Lanka. All beautiful places!

Scuttle: That sounds awesome!
Prattle: Oooooh, pretty!!!

Just piercings. One in each ear lobe and then two at the top of my left ear. I wouldn't mind a tattoo - I want to get my mum's name "Julieta" on my right wrist. She said she'll disown me if I did. OH and then she said ok get it, then she changed her mind again...

Scuttle: Awww! That would be sweet :) And Julieta is such a great name too. Just like Khrissa *wink*
Prattle: That is a VERY pretty name!! I'm sure she would secretly love it, even if she did disown you for it..

8. What super-power would you most like to have, and why?
Teleporation - Like Hayden Christensen in Jumper. That would be AWESOME! Home one minute, NYC the next :D (OMG just read Reel's little interview and she said the same thing!!! Hehehe!)

Scuttle: *cough* I said teleportation too... *scowls*
Prattle: *doe eyes at Scuttle* this isn't about you sweetie...settle down..
Scuttle: It's NOT?? *snaps out of it* Um... sorry... *giggles* I thought everything is about me. No?

9. Name one thing that not many people know about you.

I'm hearing impaired. Ok wait, people might actually know it - but most don't believe it.

Scuttle: I certainly didn't know!
Prattle: Good thing you aren't twitter impaired!

10. Whats the first thing you think of when you wake up in the morning?

I think - "I live to see another day" and for that I am grateful.

Scuttle: That's a beautiful thought :) I wish I could program it in my brain so that I could think of THAT instead of a million other unpleasant things.
Prattle: Ditto!

11. If you could go to one place in the world, where would it be?

Can't I be selfish and go to more than one? Um... just one place... (for now) I'd go to

Scuttle: To? I am missing the answer. *giggles* Oh wait.. did you do that on purpose? No cheating allowed missy! Only one destination is allowed!
Prattle: *giggles* you could make a general a hemisphere..

12. Do you prefer shaven ... or unshaven?

Shaven... we're talking about a guy's face right?

Scuttle: That's EXACTLY what we are talking about!
Prattle: Uh.. of course we are!

13. On a deserted island, what one thing would you bring?

My mobile. I take it to the toilet with me too... Is that bad? I hope this deserted island has some coverage!

Scuttle: LOL! I take it with me too! So nope, its NOT bad!
Prattle: *sprays lysol everywhere especially on your phones*

14. If you could see in black and white and one other color, what would it be?

Grey? LOL I don't know to be honest.

Scuttle: Humm...
Prattle: Grey?

Elegant Neutral:
Gray is a neutral, balanced color. It is a cool, conservative color that seldom evokes strong emotion although it can be seen as a cloudy or moody color.
Nature of Gray:
The lighter side of black, gray is a cool color seen in storm clouds and some metals.

15. Standing or on all fours?

All fours. This brings me back to my love of doggy... I mean dogs!

Scuttle: *snickers* Here doggy doggy!
Prattle: floor.... *nods head*

16. Hard and fast or soft and slow?

Fast and FURIOUS!!! Hehehe!

Scuttle: You just reminded me of Vin Diesel in that movie... mmm... I liked him in that one. I know, I know. Macho, swollen, husky thing but I dont know. I kinda liked him then.
Prattle: really?? ew.. Vin Diesel...really?? He looks nothing like Dean.
Scuttle: I know!! But I haven't met Dean by then! And its my Sisters fault. *nods head*

17. What is your favorite food to bring to bed - strawberries, chocolate, whip cream?

I don't think I've actually brought any to bed before. But I'll go a whole picnic basket if I can!

Scuttle: LOL! She's gonna play the whole 9 1/2 weeks!
Prattle: Nice! A whole picnic basket!!! try a bit of everything, huh?

18. Ever had sex at work??????

I say work is like my second home - but not enough to be a place to have sex!

Scuttle: There you go Prattle. Another virgin :) as far as the sex at work goes. *grins*
Prattle: THANK YOU! Whew... was beginning to think I was surrounded by sex-crazed freaks...oh, wait... lol
Scuttle: *rolls eyes*

19. What is your favorite curse word?

Fuck - and I blame my best friend for that. She's queen potty mouth!

Scuttle: Fuck is a good word!
Prattle: Yes, that can mean a lot.. and sometimes it's just the only word that fits!

20. What is the funniest or the most awkward sexual experience you've had?

I don't have funny or awkward sexual experiences. I think my parents heard me once though... or twice? Slightly embarrassing. THIN WALLS!!!

Scuttle: Oh come on Khrissa! I don't believe that! You, a sexy passionate Scorpio and you have nothing to share with us? Pfff... I think either you don't want to or you are so sexually liberated, you don't feel anything funny or awkward. What do you think Prattle?
Prattle: She's holding back..I'd bet on it.
Scuttle: When I look back at Scorpio characteristics... it says "Private" so yep, holding back it is!

Molten Chocolate Cake


Around a specific time of the month...well really ANY time of the month is good for this cake! What I like about it, is that it's made in ramekins and so it is already portioned out for me!

Molten Chocolate Cake (makes 2 cakes) original recipe at Food&


1/2 stick of unsalted butter
3 oz. bittersweet chocolate (see note below for substitutions using other chocolates)
1 large egg
1 egg yolk
1/8 cup sugar
pinch of salt
1 tbsp all-purpose flour

1. Preheat oven to 450 degrees F. Butter and flour two 6 oz. ramekins.

2. In the microwave, melt chocolate and butter together in a bowl.

3. In a large bowl, beat together egg, egg yolk, and sugar until thick and pale. (I had no electric beater, so using a fork I was only able to get the eggs to be frothy at best. The dessert still came out perfectly fine, but I imagine if you want a fluffier cake then go for the pale thickness using electric beaters.)

4. Stir in melted chocolate and flour and mix well. Spoon into prepared ramekins, and set on a flat baking sheet. Bake in the oven for 12 minutes. The sides of the cake will rise and look cake-y, while the center remains liquid and batter-like in appearance. Remove from oven and let sit for 1 minute in ramekins.


5. Place an inverted plate on top of the ramekin and turn over. Wait 10 seconds before un-molding the ramekin. Dust with confectioner's sugar and serve immediately, preferably with a scoop of vanilla ice cream. Enjoy! :)

Note: I had no bittersweet baking chocolate on hand, so I made an improvisational substitution using 2 oz. unsweetened chocolate + 1.5 tbsp sugar + 1/2 oz. semisweet chocolate + 1/2 oz. milk chocolate. You are trying to achieve about a 60% cocoa content to 40% sugar content in the final chocolate. Unsweetened chocolate clearly has no sugar, so I added 1.5 tbsp, which is about 1.5 oz., thus making the chocolate approximately 60% cocoa to 40% sugar (1.5 oz. sugar out of 3.5 oz. total). Then throwing in the semi-sweet (50% cocoa) and milk chocolate (30% cocoa) gave me something probably similar to semi-sweet chocolate in the end, which was a very rich chocolate without too much sweetness. Feel free to experiment with chocolate here to suit your sweetness preference.

Sex in outer space!

space sex

I read a fanfic of @Meadowc's from Whimsical Fic-ery that is a mash up of Twilight and Star Trek, it was one of the funniest things I've ever read! Bella was kinda evil, and Edward was kinda clueless..and NO fade to black!
Read it here: Fully Functional

Got me thinking about a story I'd heard on the news about if procreation in space is even possible, and what issues they would have in doing so.. Hearing Brian Williams say the words "Sex in Space" was a ROFL OMG LOL moment for me!

Here are parts from the article. To read the whole thing, go here...

"The fantasy might be vastly superior to the reality," NASA physician Jim Logan said

"Sex in space is not just a good idea, it's survival," said Vanna Bonta, a writer who blends romance with space travel and quantum physics in the novel "Flight."
However, off-Earth romantics will have to cope with some practical challenges:
Sex in space would likely be "hotter and wetter" than on Earth, Bonta said, because in zero-G there is no natural convection to carry away body heat. Also, scientists have found that people tend to perspire more in microgravity. The moisture associated with sexual congress could pool as floating droplets.

Partners would have to be anchored to the wall and/or to each other. To address that need, Bonta has come up with her own design for garments equipped with strategically placed Velcro strips and zippers.

Prattle: During a thrust, your partner would literally hit the wall or go through it!

Scuttlebutt: LOL! That would be... inconvenient! He could fall over unconscious!

Prattle: Both partners would need to be "tied" down so they didn't float apart!

Scuttlebutt: Being tied to Dean wouldn't bother me a bit you know *grins*

Prattle: I can think of several places to be velcro'd to Gerry...bwhahahaha!

floating around with Prattle

Although zero-G could be a boon for saggy body parts, Bonta said males might notice a "slight decrease" in penis size due to the lower blood pressure that humans experience in microgravity.

: *cough* what about toys, toys floating around the cabin? Penis size would decrease?? Hey, but my boobies would be perky!

Scuttlebutt: I think that's the only good thing. Perky boobs! But a small penis would vanish ... although it would be perky. A perky little penis. *giggles*

Prattle: "perky little penis"! *doubles over laughing!*

Romantics will also need to guard against the type of motion sickness that space travelers often encounter, especially if they get too adventurous right off. "Save the acrobatics for post-play vs. foreplay," Bonta advised.

: Err... thats a big NO NO for me. Getting sick during sexing? Ewwwww.... *gags* Ewwww!!

For all these reasons, Logan said spontaneous sex in space could be "a little underwhelming.""It's a pretty messy environment, when you think about it," he said.

Prattle: Hmm... and messy sex gooo would be floating around everywhere...yuck..

Scuttlebutt: Baaahhh!! That wouldn't be very nice. Oh, hey! That reminded me of a M&Ms advertisement! Where it somehow floats in the room and they all jump around and eat them! Err... no, I think I painted the wrong picture here huh?

Prattle: Um...*shakes head trying to get that visual out*

"And for every action there is an equal and opposite reaction. However ... I can well imagine how compelling, inspiring, and quite frankly stimulating choreographed sex in zero-G might be in the hands of a skilled and talented cinematographer with appropriate lighting and music."

sex in space

The physics of zero-G make the mechanics of sex more complicated. Bonta said it was challenging even to kiss her husband during a zero-G simulation flight they took recently. "You actually have to struggle to connect and stay connected," she recalled.

Prattle: Zero G? Does that mean there is less likelihood to hit the G spot??

Scuttlebutt: *snorts* Oh I am absolutely sure. It says that it makes everything more difficult!

Prattle: Well that's a no-go for me then... *frowns and crosses arms in front of self*

Scuttlebutt: It would be a no-go for everybody Prattle!

Prattle: You'd have to have great core muscles even to kiss, you'd have to work to stay together!

Scuttlebutt: That's why the aliens are all so dang strong!

Prattle: From all the zero-g no g-spot smaller penis perky boob'd kissing!

Scuttlebutt: *giggles*

Humpday hottie

Happy hump day friends!

Today's hottie is a very special man who unfortunately left us too soon...



Heath Andrew Ledger was born April 4th, 1979 in Perth, Australia. In Junior high it was compulsory to do one of two electives, either cooking.. or drama. As Heath couldn't see himself in a cooking class, he tried his hand in drama. Heath was talented but the rest of the class never acknowledged it probably because out of jealousy.

When he was 17, he and a friend decided to pack up, leave school, take a car and drove to Sydney. He believed that Sydney was the place where dreams are made, or at least where actors can possibly get their big brake.

After various, not very successful attempts, he decided to travel to USA where he played a very brief role in "Roar" (1997) opposite then unknown Vera Farmiga. He could not find any American roles but then Australian director Gregor Jordan auditioned him for the lead in Two Hands (1999), which he got. An in your face Aussie crime thriller, Two Hands (1999) was outstanding and helped him secure a role in 10 Things I Hate About You (1999). Everybody expected him to play several teen hunk roles after the big success this movie made but Heath didn't like that and he preferred to play a small role in a very serious war drama, The Patriot (2000), as Mel Gibson's son.

What followed was a stark inconsistency of roles, Ledger accepting virtually every single character role, anything to avoid being typecast. Some met with praise, like his short role in Monster's Ball (2001), but his version of Ned Kelly (2003) was an absolute flop, which led distributors hesitant to even release it outside Australia. Heath finally had deserved success with his role in Brokeback Mountain (2005), for which he was nominated for an Oscar and a BAFTA.


Heath Ledger was found dead on January 22, 2008 in his apartment in the Manhattan neighborhood of SoHo, with a bottle of prescription sleeping pills nearby. It was concluded weeks later that he died of an accidental overdose of prescription drugs that included painkillers, sleeping pills and anti-anxiety medication.

After his death, he received more than 30 posthumous awards for his portrayal as the psychopathic clown prince of crime in "The Dark Knight".

Unfortunately he could never finish filming the movie "The Imaginarium of Doctor Parnassus" because of his sudden death. Johnny Depp, Jude Law and Colin Farrell agreed to complete Ledger's role. They gave all the income they received for this movie, to Ledger's daughter Matilda, to secure her future...



2009 - Oscar for Best Performance by an Actor in a Supporting Role for: The Dark Knight (2008)

2009 - Saturn Award for Best Supporting Actor for: The Dark Knight (2008)

2009 - Austin Film Critics Award for Best Supporting Actor for: The Dark Knight (2008)

2008 - International Award by the Australian Film Institute for Best Actor for: The Dark Knight (2008)

2006 - Best Actor for International Award by the Australian Film Institute for Best Actor
for: Brokeback Mountain (2005)

2009 - BAFTA Film Award for Best Supporting Actor for: The Dark Knight (2008)

2009 - Critics Choice Award for Best Supporting Actor for: The Dark Knight (2008)

2009 - Golden Globe for Best Performance by an Actor in a Supporting Role in a Motion Picture for: The Dark Knight (2008)




He and his older sister, Kate Ledger, are named after the two main romantic characters of the Emily Brontë novel, "Wuthering Heights".

Had three sisters: Catherine (Kate) Ledger, married to Nathan Buckey, and half sisters Olivia Ledger (b. 1997) and Ashleigh Bell (b. 1989).

Named one of People Magazine's 50 Most Beautiful People in 2001.

Dated Heather Graham. [October 2000 - June 2001]

Mother was Sally Ramshaw (daughter of John and Jackie Ramshaw) and father was Kim Ledger (son of Colin and Es Ledger). Stepfather was Roger Bell and stepmother was Emma Brown. His great-grandfather was Sir Frank Ledger, son of Edson Leger.

Was originally set to star in Oliver Stone's Alexander (2004) before Colin Farrell took over the role.


Dated Naomi Watts from August 2002 to May 2004.

Was of Irish and Scottish ancestry.

Met Michelle Williams on the set of Brokeback Mountain (2005).

In 2006, took a year off from acting to raise his daughter Matilda Ledger while his girlfriend at the time, Michelle Williams, worked.

Called off his engagement to Michelle Williams in September 2007.

Owned a pet kangaroo that was found by his mother as a child.

Chosen by Empire Magazine as one of the 100 Sexiest Movie Stars in the world (#79) 2007.

Jake Gyllenhaal is the godfather of his daughter Matilda Ledger.

Was the first non-American actor to portray the Joker.

When he was cast as The Joker in The Dark Knight (2008), rumors circulated that his Brokeback Mountain (2005) cast mate Jake Gyllenhaal would be playing district attorney Harvey Dent. Instead, Jake's sister Maggie Gyllenhaal was cast as assistant D.A. Rachel Dawes.


After his death his body was returned to Perth, Western Australia, where his body was cremated at Fremantle Cemetery, with his ashes to be "scattered in a family plot at Karrakatta Cemetery, next to two of his grandparents.

In an interview shortly before his death, he stated that his favorite role so far in his career had been his role as The Joker in The Dark Knight (2008).

He is not only the first and only actor to be nominated for an Academy Award for his portrayal of the Joker, but the first and only actor to secure an acting nomination for a Batman film.

His daughter Matilda Ledger will be the recipient of his Oscar for The Dark Knight (2008) when she turns 18. Up until then the statuette will be in custody of his father Kim Ledger, mother Sally Bell and sister Kate Ledger, per Academy rules.

Very first performer to win an Oscar for acting in a comic movie-adaptation.

Was a great admirer of Johnny Depp's work. Like Depp, Ledger worked hard to avoid being typecast as a teen heartthrob early on, in the hopes of expanding his career options. Both actors enjoyed taking risky, physically unappealing roles that surprised audiences. Depp was one of the three actors who filled in for Ledger's last unfinished role after his death, in The Imaginarium of Doctor Parnassus (2009).

The second person to win a posthumous acting Oscar. The first was Peter Finch.

Won almost every award in which he was nominated for his performance as The Joker in The Dark Knight (2008) including the quintuple crown (a Golden Globe, BAFTA, SAG, Critics' Choice Award, and Oscar).


Personal quotes:

"I only do this because I'm having fun. The day I stop having fun, I'll just walk away. I wasn't going to have fun doing a teen movie again.... I don't want to do this for the rest of my life....I don't want to spend the rest of my youth doing this in this industry. There's so much I want to discover." - Vanity Fair (August 2000)

[about the paparazzi] "Most of the time you don't even know they're there. Now, that's the scary thing. It's really strange and invading, but I'm still working it all out. I try to not let it bother me. I really try and find the humor in all of it. And if I want to swim naked in my pool, I'm still going to do it. I certainly don't want to feel that I have to change everything in my life that I do to cater to them. I just won't let it happen." - National Post, May 2001

"Matilda is adorable, and beautifully observant and wise. Michelle an I love her so much. Becoming a father exceeds all my expectations. It's the most remarkable experience I've ever had - it's marvelous." [On daughter Matilda and being a father]


My life right now is, I wouldn't say reduced to food, but my duties in life are that I wake up, cook breakfast, clean the dishes, prepare lunch, clean those dishes, go to the market, get fresh produce, cook dinner, clean those dishes and then sleep if I can. And I love it. I actually adore it.

[On playing "The Joker" in The Dark Knight (2008)] The Joker, so far, is definitely the most fun I've had with any character. He's just out of control -- no empathy, he's a sociopath, uh, a psychotic, mass-murdering clown. And, uh, I'm just thoroughly, thoroughly enjoying it. It's just exceeded any expectations I had of what the experience would be like.

[On walking down the red carpet] Like diving into an Olympic pool, swimming the length underwater, then emerging gasping for breath. It's so noisy that it's quiet, you can't hear; the flashlights are so blinding that it's dark, you can't see.

As always, a video tribute from our good friend and affiliate Theresa aka Rayneattwilight.

Ghost in a bottle


Prattle: Ms. Scuttlebutt, did you see the story about a woman that bottled ghosts and sold them in a New Zealand auction?

Scuttlebutt: No, I haven't actually. She did what? Bottled ghosts??? Like a genie?

Prattle: Not like a genie, a know, one that says "Boo!"

Scuttlebutt: Ooooh! That kind of ghost.

Prattle: She said that she had an exorcism performed and contained the ghosts of an old man and a girl in a bottle of holy water.

Scuttlebutt: Uh huh... holy water huh? Hmm... *thinks of Dean fighting Demons with holy water*

Prattle: Dean Dean Dean... *rolls eyes*

Scuttlebutt: *claps hands staring at her Dean*


Prattle: The top bidders are makers of fake cigarettes, what would they want with bottled ghosts?

Scuttlebutt: Fake cigarettes? What? Like chewing gum cigarettes? I don't know.. Maybe they wanna put a piece of the ghosts in there so they scare people into not smoking? *sniggers*

Prattle: Bwhahaha! Good point, that would stop me!


Prattle: Mr. Prattle said that we could bottle his soul and sell it for @2k..he's pretty cheap.

Scuttlebutt: Only 2000 US$? Oh come on! He's more worth! Why even sell him in the first place? *grins*

Prattle: I think we could get 5 for him, but that's just me.... *grins*

Scuttlebutt: *giggles*

Prattle: One comment on the auction said that the "spirits" were Jim Beam and Johnnie Walker! I think I agree!

Scuttlebutt: Hmm... but isn't the one of them a little girl? I'd rather say one of them is Johnnie Walker and the other one a *insert name of known American lemonade brand*.

Prattle: Lemonade brand? *scratches head* Country time?

Scuttlebutt: Huh? Are you talking American again?

Prattle: All profits from the sale are donated to an animal charity, after the exorcist fees of course.

Scuttlebutt: And here you can see the gorgeous exorcist...

happy dean

Scuttlebutt: Who on earth would buy a bottled ghost? What if the spirit gets mad? What if it breaks out of the bottle somehow? What if I accidentally rub it and it jumps out? Dean is far far away! The ghosts would kill me before I even had the chance to call him so he can save me from them!

Prattle: All good questions Dear Scuttle...all good questions..

Monday's attack of the nosy neighbor...

Hello friends!

Hope you all had an awesome Easter Holiday!

We are baaaaaaack! Missed us?? We certainly missed you!!

Today we present to you... Fayezeewayzee aka Fay aka Fee Fee. LOL. Read on!


1. We know what we call you... What would you like us to call you?

Well,my name means fairy or elf. A friend recently named me FeeFee (cause she thought I needed a young sounding name~cause I'm as old as the hills!) How old are hills anyway? An Uncle named me fayezeewayzee,so I chose that one for twitter, and some even call me MAMA! you can call me whatever you like!

Prattle: I guess that would depend on the hills in question, you should watch the Discovery Channel or National Geographic to answer that question. You gave a lot of info here.. *scratching head trying to follow* not sure what to call you, maybe "Chatty Cathy".

Scuttlebutt: Chatty Cathy is a good one *sniggers knowingly*

2. How old are you or how old do you want us to think you are?

I already told you,I'm as old as the hills,gosh!But I swear I'm only 17!

Prattle: *rolls eyes and reads down* then why didn't you completely answer question 20??

Scuttelbutt: Oh... 17? Well I guess I'll stop calling you momma then huh? Since I'm only 25 I mean...

3. When is your Birthday & what is your star sign?

November 2nd & I'm a Scorpio~Emotional~Intuitive~Passionate~Determined Yep,that sounds like me!

4. Do you like cats or dogs? And why?

I like both when they are babies. But don't give me one! I don't want anything else that eats and poops! I've got enough of that already!

Prattle: *makes note* Faye does not like things that eat or poop....

Scuttlebutt: Yes she does! She just have plenty already! I think I'm gonna send her Dahlia over for a couple weeks of vacation. She's gonna love her!

5. What is your favorite movie and/or book?

This is a tough one!There is no way I can pick a favorite movie. I went to a site, to get some idea on how I was going to narrow down and select just one. This is what I did...and how I picked a film...not necessarily my #1, but one I love. A gentleman from made his list of 200 of his favorite movies from 1930-2000. I scanned thru each one, and one in particular jumped up and told me to stop! This movie moves me. Gives me chills. Makes me cry. Just does it ALL for me! And the winner is...FIELD OF DREAMS! Now remember, I *LOVE ACTUALLY* many more! Just HAD to sneak that in there! Get back to me when you want to make *LISTS*!

A book, only thing I can say is maybe Twilight (the series) because I've never fallen in love with a book before!Or is it really the book I fell in love with...?

Prattle: I loved "Field of Dreams" too! "there's no crying in baseball!!" wait..wrong movie.. "if you build it, they will come", I think SM must have heard "if you write it they will love", what do you think Scuttle?

Scuttlebutt: Uh huh... *feels too Greek at the moment* I don't think I have seen that movie... Hmm... I... errr... Yeahh! Surrre... Ummm... *runs over to* Oh, and I'm sure its not ONLY the book you fell in love with *wink*

6. What countries have you visited?

I believe only Mexico *scratching head*. Now if you wanna talk about how many *states* I've been in...that's like little countries, right? O I forgot, YOU are asking the questions...sorry.

Prattle: *looks at banner to see if it's "Faye and Scuttlebutt"* No, states are not like little countries silly! *laughs* you don't need a passport (yet) to go across state lines!!

Scuttlebutt: *sniggers* Yes, but... if you compare a big state of yours with Greece perhaps or lets say... hmmm.. Luxemburg? It's like a little country.

7. Do you have any tattoos and/or piercings?

My ears are pierced,twice in each.No to tattoos.Can't say I'm a fan, but I can see why people want them.But as Jimmy Buffett puts it~a permanent reminder of a temporary feeling~I believe that is true with (most) tattoos that people get.I know I would regret getting that tattoo of RPattz in an 8X10 on my back or something,when I wake up from this dream.

Prattle: You know, my mom used to tell me that if I got a tattoo she would erase it with a brillo pad. She used to say the same thing Faye, then she went on a trip with a girl friend and came back with a tattoo.

Scuttelbutt: BWAHAHAHHAAAAA!!! I'd like to see your hubs face when he would see RPattz on your back!! *looks at Prattle* Your mom has a tattooooo??? What is it? Oh Faye... who knows, maybe when you come visit me... hehe.

Prattle: Yes, she went to Florida with a friend about 6 years ago and came back with an Ankh on her hip! I was so mad when I saw that!! She gave me hell for mine but according to her, hers was "a different story"..pfff...whatever.. LOL!

Scuttlebutt: Yeah, I'm sure! A drunk story! LOL

8. What super-power would you most like to have, and why?

I'm not sure what you would call it, but the power to HEAL.I don't think I need to explain.What can I say...I'm DEEP!(Just asked one of my DD's what you call that)?She said a televangelist.I wanna be a televangelist!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Prattle: You want to use the television to convert people to Christianity? Wow.. No, you want to be a healer!

Scuttlebutt: Bwahahahhaaa!! Oh me... Hahahahaaa!!! *snorts* Oh I'm sorry... I don't know why I think everything is so funny today!! When I first read the "interview" I thought... "wait.. doesn't televangelist have something to do with TV"? But then I thought... "Hell, what do I know? I'm Greek!" LOL

9. Name one thing that not many people know about you.

If you really did know me, you would never believe this.I was kicked out of 2 high schools!

Prattle: *pulls up a chair* Do tell more....

Scuttlebutt: *leans in closer* Oh yes! Please do!

10. Whats the first thing you think of when you wake up in the morning?

Easy one!Usually there is music playing in my head.No really.So I think,how fast can I get to the computer and blip that song before I forget what it is!And I always state *what was playing in my jukebox brain this morning*.

Prattle: I like your jukebox. *grins*

Scuttlebutt: :) If we wanna know her mood, we just have to look at her blips :)

11. If you could go to one place in the world, where would it be?

Europe. And bounce from one little country to another,seeing the sights,and seeing the people. I don't know why but I've always fancied seeing Ireland.No particular reason.

Prattle: *nods head* Me too, both the mister and I have traced our families back to Ireland.

Scuttlebutt: *scowls at both of you* Uh huh... You don't wanna come visit Greece now... right?

Prattle: *tilts head and pats Scuttle's back" you know better than that..

12. Do you prefer shaven ... or unshaven?

Why isn't half & half an option?*making my little box to check that one off* We'll say I like to be nicely groomed!

Prattle: *hands on hips* Whoa there missy! Who's blog is this? No making new checkboxes! Muahahaha! *giggles* Nicely groomed...

Scuttlebutt: Hehe :)

13. On a deserted island, what one thing would you bring?

A genie in a bottle.First I was going to say the biggest ipod I could find.Then I would need my computer to keep it charged.And then I would need an electric outlet to plug the computer into.And so yeah...A genie in a bottle.

Prattle: You're awfully needy aren't you? A genie? Then you could poof yourself off the island..I don't think we should accept this answer..

Scuttlebutt: *folds hands on chest and shakes head* Nope! Not accepting this answer. *hops over to Dean and sits on his lap in my deserted island*

14. If you could see in black and white and one other color, what would it be?

Aquamarine? Sorry...I can't help it!

Prattle: Woot! A shade of blue!! *glares at Scuttle* After the last "Neighbor" comment, I don't know if I want to add what this color means...

Scuttlebutt: *rolls eyes* Pffff....

BLUE means peace, professionalism, loyalty, reliability, honor, melancholia, boredom, coldness, winter, depth, stability, trust.

15. Standing or on all fours?

Where is the *I'm old fashioned,on my back* choice? What's the matter with you gals?! OK...I'll say all fours.

Prattle: How on earth can you mop a floor on your back??

Scuttlebutt: I really don't know! Faye, please tell us how you're doing this on your back!

16. Hard and fast or soft and slow?

Uhhhhhhhhhh <that's an exasperated expression! My answer... which ever one gets the job done faster? Isn't that correct? Don't I win a prize or something? Dang.

: Job? We're talking about a STORM!! How do you prefer to listen to it RAIN!! Geesh...dirty lady.. *shakes head at Faye*

Scuttlebutt: She's a very dirty one, isn't she? *shakes head* Tsk tsk tsk... I knew it. Dirty Scorpio!

17. What is your favorite food to bring to bed - strawberries, chocolate, whip cream?

I'll say.....chocolate.But I don't bring it to bed.That would be cookies.I like to hear the lecture about my getting crumbs in the bed.Makes for good romantic conversation.

Prattle: I think this is the best answer yet.. *laughs*

Scuttlebutt: *laughs and hugs Faye and Prattle*

18. Ever had sex at work??????

Um duh...yeah.I work at home.Silly people.

Prattle: So I'm still the only one that has a no on this question..Pervy sexcrazed people..

Scuttlebutt: *glances at Prattle sideways* Come again?

Prattle: You heard me Dear Scuttle..

Scuttlebutt: Pervy sexcrazed people.. Uh huh... ROFL And that came out of Prattles mouth!

19. What is your favorite curse word?

The *S* word.You know I don't curse!

Prattle: Hmmm.. *thinking* I can only think of one that begins with "S"....

Scuttlebutt: Hmm... I can think of a couple. But nothing is a curse word to be honest! :)

20. What is the funniest or the most awkward sexual experience you've had?

Now this will be sketchy!There is a big possibility that one of my DD's will see this!Soooo let's say I was very a party...and it has to do with...lights on,lights off.Be happy that I'm saying anything at all in response to this question!!!

Prattle: Strobe light sex?!?!?! Really?!?!?! *bends over laughing!* Nice one Faye!

Scuttlebutt: What is a strobe light?

Prattle: A strobe light is a light that goes on and off and on all on it's own, it's set up to do that so when the light is on it looks like a snapshot, you can't really see motion.

Scuttlebutt: Aaaahhh! Yep! I know what it is! But I think that back in the day when Faye was a young girl *ducks* there wasn't such thing as a strobe light!

Prattle: it was probably the pterodactyl flying in front of the sun.. bwahahahahaha!!! I'm kidding, I'm kidding!!!! *holds up white flag*

Scuttlebutt: BWWWWWWWWAHAHAHHAAAAA!!! *falls on floor laughing*
